Description
In February 1793 France declared war on Britain, and for the next 22 years the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars raged. As the author of Supership and Frontiers vividly depicts here, the war at sea was particularly cruel, fought on an enormous scale, and brought new naval tactics to bear, including the use of rockets, mines, and submarines.

"Although [Noel] Mostert doesn't neglect the technical aspects of naval warfare, he avoids the trap of allowing details to overwhelm his exciting narrative. This is a vast, fast-moving chronicle that ranges across great distances while examining a host of characters, both well known and relatively obscure. Mostert does justifiably place great emphasis on Admiral Nelson and the critical battle at Trafalgar. He also offers useful and interesting descriptions of less-prominent aspects of the wars, including conflicts with the Barbary pirates and the British struggles against the rise of American naval power. This is an outstanding survey of a prolonged struggle that helped shape world history."Booklist
